UnChained: for the love of dogs and at-risk youth

Do you love dogs and young people? Here's a chance to volunteer for a nifty organization that brings together a mission to help homeless dogs and at-risk youth.
UnChained, Inc. matches dogs from local shelters and rescue organizations with at-risk youth. Using positive-reinforcement training, the kids learn to train the dogs. The teens learn positive communication with each other, mastery of a skill, impulse-control and future orientation.

In turn, the dogs learn good manners, basic skills and confidence which increases their chances of a successful adoption.

UnChained is asking volunteers who love dogs, kids and have some dog handling experience. Time commitment: Beginning January 2014, 1 or 2 days per week for 8 weeks, 2 school quarters total. 

The organization's winter programs begin January.  Volunteers needed in  Monterey and Santa Cruz counties are Youth Team Leader, Dog Chauffeur and Dog Foster Family. To apply, contact Melissa Wolf, Executive Director at (831) 818-8738 or wolfunchained@yahoo.com. Click here for more information.
